What is the sturdy collection bag trial?
From 11 March 2020, residents on Handel Street (section east of Hunter Street) will be provided with a 'sturdy collection bag' for their bagged recycling and rubbish.
This is part of an approximate three-month trial to see if this type of sturdy collection bag can reduce the mess and litter caused by rubbish bags being ripped open or left out wrongly.
The bags will be for use on collection day only – not for the storage of waste between collection days. If used correctly they should help keep Handel street clean.
We intend to review this trial in June 2020 and will update residents from then.
